Background & Themes
The Transport Innovation Centre Sheffield (TICS) was formed following a successful bid from The University of Sheffield (TUOS) with Sheffield Hallam University (SHU) to participate in the Transport Systems Catapult (TSC) University Partnership Programme (UPP). TICS was incepted in December 2014.
We are able to build on the strength of existing expertise in multiple aspects of transport research at the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University, in both Intelligent Mobility and strong engineering expertise in railway and transport research.
TICS promotes dissemination and exploitation of existing work, and provides the resource to facilitate future collaborations, demonstrations, and the exploitation of research. TICS supports researchers through identifying research funding opportunities, trends and industry’s research needs; providing links to industry and support in developing collaborations and applying for funding. Likewise, TICS helps industrial partners by providing a route to engage with academic researchers and the Transport Systems Catapult, and support in applying for collaborative funding.
